problem statement will be the heart of your dissertation. COGNITIVE DISSONANACE, SAME-SEX.

Review Formulating a research problem, which is included in this week’s assigned readings.

In previous weeks, you have been working on different elements of your Scholarly literature Review. This week your task will be to finalize your draft and include the following elements:

  2. Next, synthesize the recommendations for future research gathered via the literature review and present them in a brief 1-page summary.
